Review: Pretty & Polished Hearts & Daggers & Ampersands

I hope there are some of you out there that understand the torture of ordering polishes off the internet and then "having" to go on vacation before they get there.  Pretty and Polished released a few new polishes before I left for Australia and of course I had to order them, mostly because of the number of them that had matte glitter.  Oh how I love matte glitter.  Let's take a look at the stand out for the bunch, Hearts & Daggers.

Hearts & Daggers is a clear polish packed with black and white hexes, diamonds and bar glitter and large red hearts.  I had the hardest time choosing what this should go over.  I'd normally choose a blue or yellow but nothing seemed to go quite right with the red hearts.  So of course I settled on fuchsia.  That goes well with red, right?  So to start with, two coats of American Apparel Neon Purple.  Then two coats of Hearts & Daggers.  As is often the problem with these thick glitters, it took everything in my arsenal to get it to dry.  For the record, a combination of Seche Vite, drying drops and not reaching into drawers helps.  







The Verdict:  Love the huge glitter choices in this polish, like the addition of the red hearts to mix it up.  Keep it up!

Also, hang in there index finger, thumb will be better soon :(

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
